This is a photo of  Rosie Huntington Whiteley chosen by the fabulous duo of Two Birds.  Sisters Megan and Nora, choose a weekly inspiration for their Inspiration Monday link up. 

These shoes have a long story behind them... they were meant to be mine and they were made mine by my fabulous friend Bonnie at Christmas.  She gave me two boxes and when I opened one of the boxes, it had one shoe and I screamed because I knew what was in the other box, of course.  There is something to be said about opening a box with one shoe...it is like opening the key to something.  When my husband gave me the camera, he let me open all of the gadgets that went with it, therefore I knew what the main gift was...he's great!
Vintage clutch thrifted $2.99
Trying out my new camera with remote ...it was a lot better with the remote because it was below freezing outside I and managed to take a lot less time with the shoot.  So, I am definitely a fan.

I love your interpretation, your new camera is AMAZING, and I'm kind of wishing I had a remote now. First a mini-trailer and now a remote - you inspire me to buy things I never knew I always wanted.
